Bocelli confirms he will sing at Cayman fundraiser

(CNS): Andrea Bocelli, the famous blind Italian tenor, has confirmed that he is interrupting his official world tour to do a fundraising concert in the Cayman Islands on Saturday evening. The special charity event has caused a stir on social media over the last few weeks as people called into question the validity of the concert due to some major errors in the promotional material and misleading claims about where the event was being held and for what purpose.

However, Bocelli issued an official release saying he was “thrilled” with the chance to perform in the Cayman Islands this weekend for the first time. Tickets for the event, which organisers say will be held at Pedro St James, have reportedly sold for $1,500 and $2,500.

Dr Ronald Nutt and his wife, Lynda, who are residents of Cayman and the founders of the non-profit organisation LRN Charitable Company, which is registered as a Cayman Islands NPO, have said the concert is to raise money for the research and development of a piece of medical machinery, patented by Nutt, to enable the early detection of cancer.

However, in the first marketing material circulated in Cayman to promote the event, the charitable company name was misspelt and an incorrect logo was used. The concert was said to be taking place at Pedro St James with dinner included in the ticket at the Mandarin Hotel in Beach Bay, which has not yet been built. Those who wanted to buy the costly tickets were asked to pay via wire transfer and the details of how the money being raised would actually be used were vague.

In a press release issued on 18 February, Lynda Nutt said her husband had co-invented and developed PET-CT, and LRN was founded for the purpose of “continuing the global advancements in the battle against cancer by improving early detection technologies through their new initiatives”. She said the organisation was working on the development of the Time-Resolved Positron Emission Tomography, or TPET, and currently holds two patents.

“We believe this new technology will qualify as a screening tool for most cancers occurring in the human body. When the goals of very low radiation dose requirements and lower cost of scanning are met, TPET scanning will be similar to that of breast cancer screening and can be more available to everyone. The funds raised from this performance will help support our efforts,” Nutt said about what is expected to become a profit-making venture.

CNS contacted Nutt to give her an opportunity to address concerns raised by a number of compliance officers in the private sector, especially over the request for payment via wire transfer. One compliance expert told CNS that such a request from a charitable trust should raise a red flag for the authorities.

Government officials had told CNS that they were aware of questions about the charity and the validity of the concert, given the concerns about the early promotional materials and the misleading information. However, they confirmed that LRN was a registered charity and the materials naming it as the “LNR Charitable Company” were made in error.

Nutt confirmed receipt of questions from CNS on 20 February and said she appreciated the opportunity to respond to those concerns and that she would get the answers to us. However, despite our efforts to follow up, on the eve of the concert, Nutt has still not responded to the questions.

As of 18 February, Nutt had said that 80% of the tickets for the private concert were already sold. Anyone with questions or requiring further information about the event can call Nutt on 1-345-916-6626.

    Why is that these Government Ministers are quick to take photos of themselves with their constituents for every last thing, EXCEPT when they are at the Andrea Bocelli concert. I was there and saw Panton, Saunders, Bush and Kenneth with their wives at the VIP $5,000 a ticket function. That’s $40K of the tax payers money. There was a photographer there – so why are they not sharing those photos? Do tell PACT

    The LRN Foundation does not seem to be listed under the Cayman Islands Charities.

    It would be useful to know more about this Foundation.

        Exactly 1:55 as well as Ministerial Code of Conduct 14.1, but who’s worried about adhering to any ethical code when previous transgressions are waved on through. The additional question might also be asked is could the Ministers have placed themselves in a compromised position especially with the Nutts heavy engagement in US politics, – all assuming they were gifted the tickets.

    Lots of these comments sound like some upset, broke people that are unhappy about not being able to afford this event or do not have the caliber to appreciate it.

    There are more than enough $10 and $25 entry events in Cayman for everyone to get entertained.

    The mentality of anyone that could complain about a legendary entertainer performing in Cayman is madness. There is rarely a ruckus when dirt music performers flood our shores every weekend to play their IQ dropping lyrics and beats.

      Its not the ticket price – its the combination of a) asking for money by wire b) including dinner at a non existent hotel and c) zero transparency on how the funds are going to be used, even though part of the sales pitch is that your ticket price will go to a charitable purpose. But go on then – display your wealth and supposed cultural superiority by dropping $2500 on an event that may never take place and where you don’t know where the money is going, just because you can afford to. To me that doesn’t show you are superior at all – it shows me that you are a remarkably naive if not downright dumb as well as arrogant.

      I don’t think anyone is upset about not being able to go. I think the comments are directed at the fact that there is a fundraiser that seems to be more about a personal patent than anything to do with actual cancer research.
      It does seem suspect that there were spelling errors and wrong logos and that it cannot be verified as a NPO here.
      I would have loved to have been able to gone, especially my mom who doesn’t travel anymore, but the price was out of my range. I don’t begrudge anyone the ability to afford that or not, but for me the whole thing seems suspect when the “charity” seems more about personal matter than an actual charity that benefits the most needy.
      “Raise the Standards” you sounds like an entitled prick.

      CNS: LRN Charitable Company is registered company. See here. Because it was spelt wrong in the original promotion, people couldn’t find it on the list.

      No one seems upset by the price or the singer. What seems odd is the “charity” involved in funding a for-profit business run by the same people who run the “charity”. Lots of businesses do good and useful things, but they generally do so by, you know, engaging in normal processes for obtaining investors and developing their products, and not fobbing it off as a charitable effort of some kind.

    So tonight an area on busy Spotts Straight was lined, (on both sides of the road at some points) with cars and huge busses, clearly causing a hazard for drivers. Where were the police?! There were also cars and busses that had taken over the entrance and road to a private development, adjacent to what I now understand might be the Nutt’s residence. It is also my understanding that a dinner, prior to the Andrea Bocelli concert, was being held there with politicians and others in attendance.That is all well and good but this went on for hours and had there been an emergency for anyone in that neighborhood, l am sure emergency vehicles would have had difficulty accessing the area. I contacted someone in the development affected and learned that no one had the decency to contact either the developer or homeowners prior to the vehicular takeover of their neighborhood! The homeowners were not pleased by this disrespectful intrusion. Who would be?! The audacity of those people to think it was ok to do something like that. There’s a saying “Money cannot buy class.” I guess this is a true example of that.

      When we get personal advantage so integrally intertwined with philanthropic goals it gives an uneasy feeling, particularly in light of the slow release of information, important aspects of which turned out to be inaccurate.

      For example, while this appears on the surface to be a worthy cause, which reliable independent auditing agency is doing normal checks and balances to ensure this money is not going into personal pockets rather than to the stated cause? This is standard practice for reputable organizations.

      Personally, before I bought a ticket, I would have liked more third party bonafides on goals and management of funds.

According to the names being dropped of who are involved I thought this would have been a flawless arrangement.

    Don’t know why everyone is moaning about the price. If you flew to Miami to see him, you’d spend more than US$1,500 for flights, hotel, food, car, concert tickets, and the obligatory trip to Target. This is an amazing opportunity. I was going to see him at the Teatro de Silenzio in Italy and then COVID showed up. I think $1,500 is perfectly reasonable in those circumstances.

    And, I CANNOT wait to see Adrea Bocelli perform tomorrow night.

      The fact that so many people are giving this particular comment a thumbs down tells you all you need to know about the people who are viewing the event with such negativity.

      The event was spectacular. The opportunity to see such a great talent with such a small audience in such a lovely location was priceless.

      Whilst I completely disagree with the Nutt’s politics, if they do indeed support Trump, their underwriting of this concert, with all the risk involved, was greatly appreciated by me.

      I am confident the Maestro and his team fully investigated the bona fides of the Nutt’s charitable intentions for the event, and found them to be genuine, otherwise he would not have agreed to perform.

      To those unable to attend, I am sorry you missed it.

      To those who could have attended, but refused to because of some conspiracy theory you heard, or invented, please bottle up your faux outrage and use it for other more important things, like income inequality, climate change, environmental protection etc. etc.

    This is actually quite sad. Andrea Bocellli has been my favourite tenor for over 40 years. I raised my child listening to his music and still listen to him on YouTube videos, all the time. I have many of his CDs as well. It goes without saying that when plans of him possibly coming here to perform was announced we became very excited; however, that soon changed to disappointment when the price tag was discovered.This is no negative reflection on Andrea Bocelli, however, in fact, I suspect that the marketing, claiming it to be a fundraiser, would have played a big part in him deciding to come and perform. This is a man who often freely shares his amazing talent with the world for worthy causes. It’s just the humble, caring and generous person that he is, and it really sucks because his performances in Florida sell at affordable prices. If this was truly the fundraiser the Nutts claim it is, then perhaps this situation would not be a topic of discussion. I agree with the sentiments of others that it is seemingly an event geared towards the rich purporting to raise funds for a device the Nutts will hold the patent for. One from which they stand to make an immense profit. However, this is Cayman so it is no surprise, though disappointing, that this is happening. Nevertheless, perhaps one day Andrea Bocelli will come again when the rest of his fans can afford to come and enjoy his amazing performance. I pray that Andrea, his family, members of his orchestra and his operating team will be treated well, and provided with everything needed to have a safe and enjoyable visit.

      Well I am certain Bocelli has requirements that must be met to agree to do a fundraiser event for a non profit. So to question the validity of the foundation is to question his as well. This is a fundraiser hence why the tickets are so much more to attend, this is common practice in any large city for fundraising events. Many events are thousands of dollars per plate and no promise of such amazing entertainment. For those that want him to come and his performances to be more accessible please go ahead and make it happen, it not as easy as you all think!

As one would expect the foundation had to do KYC like all the rest of us.

      The red flag is the self-dealing. Would not have been allowed to be an NPO if the funds used directly or indirectly benefitted the board. Just sayin….

    This is a seed round vc social enterprise raising money using Bocelli as the carrot. Any IP will be patented and commercialized, so Company Registrar ought to really query the NPO false-flag at minimum, and have them pay the extra few hundred bucks.

      If the charity funds the development the charity will own any resulting IP no? If you wanted to create a lasting legacy with it’s own income after your death this would seem like a pretty smart way to do it.

        We don’t have enough information to say, but it is much more likely (on the basis of the fact that we are told the Nutts own the patent) that the charity will either make a grant to the Nutts/some other entity owned by them or directly cover research expenditures – it would take a donation/transfer of the patent to the charity for there to be a (potential) income stream to the charity down the road.

    Looks more like an IPO for the wealthy than a “fundraiser”

    So let me get this straight. The Nutts are promoting this concert as a charity fundraiser. The benefiting charity is owned by the Nutts and the funds raised will be used to further develop a medical device which the Nutts have a patent on. Hardly a charity!

    Here’s a thought, donate the money raised to a REAL charity and go to the capital markets to raise money for your personal business ventures.

    Not only does this stink but it’s also just plain Nutts.

      If they did indeed invent the PET-CT and hold the patent, shouldn’t they be uber rich? Why do they need to raise funds for this new device? And why should the public pay for something they stand to profit from immensely.
      I worry that this is a fund raiser for Trump’s campaign.

          That doesn’t entitle them to NPO status, especially when they are the ones benefitting from the proceeds with a long term plan to generate profits on their patented products. Stinks to high hell.

    Well, this sets the record straight.

    I’d expect Andy B’Celli-Ebanks to be singing with his world famous skiffle band.

    Can the organisers state, for the record, that no funds raised by this event will go towards Trump’s re=election campaign?

      I raised concerns over this when the concert was announced. The Nutts seemed very cagey about answering questions as to the validity of their fund-raising efforts. It all seems very odd.
      Is the concert going ahead? I wonder who will attend ? Who roll benefit?
      Let’s hope innocent people are not being taken for a ride. Lynda Nutt is a committed Trumpette, which doesn’t sit very well with scientific endeavour or classical music culture.

        This whole thing is sketchy. A charity which is underwriting the Nutts for-profit business enterprise should at least be independently run, and accountable to an actual board.

        If their ideas and IP are actually worth anything, there are certainly tech investing funds who have the expertise to analyze the tech, and assess whether it is worth anything. Medical imaging is not a field where one maverick comes up with some radical advance. But who has heard of a medical imaging system that was financed by a charity run by someone who is the principal beneficiary of the charity. And why can’t they attract private capital funding for this project?

        This thing seems a little off.
